- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
If you've never heard of us, we are The Dead Beat from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada! Instrumental Surf/Psych since 2008. Our brand new album and previous one are available at this link below. Check out our reviews at Reverbcentral.com.
I am pleased to announce the SurfGuitar101 2012 MP3 Compilation! Our 8th one! Just like before, this is a way for members to share music, recording tips, and to just have fun. The main emphasis is fun, so please send in an entry no matter what your skill level is. Here are the rules:
I have created an Official 2012 MP3 Compilation Forum Thread. Please use that thread to discuss the compilation and to get information on how to submit an mp3. Please use that thread if you'd like to find a fellow member to work with on the project. With the magic of digital recording and the internet, remote collaborations are possible. Make your own virtual surf band! Let the comp begin!
Please check out our prior compilations if you haven't seen them already: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011.
Excellent band "Surf Rock", from Mexico City...!!!!
The new documentary "Reverb Junkies" screened for the very first time ever last month at the BBC Music Video Fest in Norfolk England. From the BBC:
This film is all about passion - a love of Surf Music. Made on the shores of California and sent direct to our Festival for a first ever showing. A music phenomenon that has travelled the world, but keeps true to its Californian 60s surf roots.
As many of you know, Eddie Bertrand has terminal cancer has a week or perhaps 2 weeks at best left with us. In order to get as many letters to Eddie as possible you may email Eddie directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will print the emails and hand carry them to Eddie daily. Eddie is appreciative of your thoughts and well wishes.
